I am extremely happy to have received this honor. I have been working on my research under Professor Yuji Wada since I was a fourth-year undergraduate student, and I feel that its importance to science in general is being recognized. I am grateful to my professors for guiding me daily in my life as a researcher, all my labmates, and of course my family. I am more motivated to continue my work until this research provides true benefit to society.
